Sanders accepts Kentucky primary result; Clinton wins state

- WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders says his campaign accepts the primary results in Kentucky, handing front-runner Hillary Clinton another victory and an additional pledged delegate.

A review of election results Thursday yielded no change in the outcome of Kentucky's May 17 primary.

Both candidates had earned 27 delegates, with one outstanding in the 6th congressional district. Because Clinton currently leads Sanders by about 500 votes in that district, she will receive the remaining delegate.

Sanders sent a letter requesting a recanvassing of the results on Tuesday. He could have asked a judge to order a recount, but he would have to pay for it himself.

Clinton now leads Sanders by a margin of 272 pledged delegates from primaries and caucuses. But Sanders has vowed to stay in the race.
